Instrument One detail view

instrumentONE series

The instrumentONE series contains a variety of ultra-fast, high-precision, non-contact liquid handling systems in order to create a flexible platform for your individual application. Based on several years of M2 experience it provides flexibility in pattern design and high-speed printing through the use of our unique micro dispensing technology, online degassing and online quality control. Fully compatible with our Quattro-Dispensing Technology array production is now much more intuitive as a result of the simplified liquid path handling.

If you have any questions or want to start to configure your own instrument, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Key Features

  • Free pattern design
  • Automated target and microarray imaging
  • High speed processing
  • Spot on fly technology
  • 2D or 3D droplet imaging
  • Flexible deck configuration

Customer Specific Layout

If your applications require an individual non-standard target layout– no problem for the iONE. Each setup can be customized to your individual demands, while offering flexibility as well as reproducibility in one solution.

Classic Layout

A classic microarray spotter layout can be combined with extra source wells and even large variety of volume tubes

Two Sizes

The current generation of the iONE series is available in two different sizes. Both can process a variety of target capacities, which make them ideal for many applications in pL, nL, μL and low mL volume ranges.



iONE can be equipped with a modular selection of functional components such as:

  • an Ultrasonic bath,
  • an inflight 3D-Droplet control,
  • a high precision Analytic balance,
  • additional Pin Wash,
  • Dry Station and
  • many more.



In addition, our printing area vacuum tables are also available in two sizes– supporting likewise printing on membranes, glass slides and planar films.


MTP – Microtiterplate - Microplate

On its maximum layout, iONE can supports a total of 24 target plates. A lot of space for your innovative application.


Common applications
